iPod continues terminal decline
In addition to its official announcement, Apple has also posted a detailed breakdown of its fiscal Q3 results. "Greater China" -- including Taiwan and Hong Kong -- continued to lead the charge regionally, with its revenue increasing 28 percent year-over-year to $5.935 billion. Europe and Asia-Pacific each advanced 6 percent, to $8.091 billion and $2.161 billion, respectively. Apple's most important market, the Americas, rose 1 percent to $14.577 billion. Global retail numbers were up 1 percent to $4.104 billion.
By product, revenue from iPhones was up 9 percent to $19.751 billion. The iPad's slumping sales caused it to fall 8 percent to $5.889 billion, but the Mac was up 13 percent to $5.540 billion. The iPod -- otherwise unmentioned in Apple PR -- saw units fall 36 percent to 2.926 billion, and revenue drop a precipitous 40 percent to just $442 million.
iTunes, software, and services increased 12 percent to $4.485 billion. Accessory sales advanced at the same rate to $1.325 billion.
